or may not come out of washington? >> well, thanks. i think the reality is we're going to go over the cliff. the only issue is how long do we stay over the cliff? if it's 60 days, 90 days, that's a big problem for the economy, for the market, and i think you want to raise cash. i recommend starting with a cash weight of at least 10% and go up 2.5% each week, depending on whether or not they can come to agreement. i mean, i think ultimately it probably will come to agreement, but let's face it, obama's not going to get inaugust -- inaugurated until the 21st, and boehner thinks the real deadline is february or early march. that's a time frame to look for, and the reality is if you look at the markets over the last while, they are correlated between the commodity markets, oil, bonds, stocks, and that has not been the case for many, many years, and so it's really one trade. there's a macro trade. what's going on in the u.s. with the fiscal cliff, and before that, it was all about europe. david: larry, your picks, disney and direct tv, i know you like the vegas stocks, las vegas sans,

and washington. do you see companies perhaps getting a special tax holiday and bringing back those billions and billions of dollars parked overseas back to the u.s.? >> yes. i hope we have. we think there are people advising this administration and the way to get the economy is the way to repatriate that cash that is trapped overseas. you could reduce tax rates for a1 times special holiday. instead of the marginal tax numbering your money back from europe being 30% you might make it 10%. a lot of money would come back to the u.s. and it would be good for the economy. dave: don't mean to pouu water and your idea because i agree with you it would be a great idea to have a tax holiday we have it ministrations people want from the chief economic adviser of the president on down with the administration and they say no way they are going to do this. would give the any optimism it might be done? >> people need revenue. this is positive for revenue. the money sits over cease and the u.s. treasury gets none of it. if you declare this tax holiday the money produces revenue in nd the u.s.. the change
